A Yamaha Artist since 1980, Tommy Aldridge is one of hard rock and heavy metal’s most influential drummers. From growing up listening to classic rock like Cream, The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix, Tommy’s signature style was drawn from very song oriented and stylist players. Early on he took the concept of a live drum solo to new levels. Tommy’s famous drum solos are still the thing of legend with him hitting his Yamaha Drums not only with sticks but with his hands.
His bombastic style can be heard with such iconic artists as Black Oak Arkansas, Ozzy Ozbourne, Pat Travers and Whitesnake. Tommy continues to tour the world on concert stages and drum clinic stages with Yamaha Drums and Hardware.
